SUPERIMPOSED CAPTION: 'A BOOK AT BEDTIME'

Voice Over: 'Book at Bedtime' Tonight Jeremy Toogood reads 'Redgauntlet' by Sir Walter Scott.

Third Reader: Streaked!

Second Reader: Streaked?

(He can't make out the next word. The second reader also tries to puzzle it out and eventually Jeremy pulls the book down towards him and they all try to puzzle it out. A lot of head shaking. A technician enters wearing heaphones.)

Technician: Cairngorml In the shadows of Cairngorm! Third Reader In the shadows of Cairngorm, the l… layered…

Second Technician: Laird! The Laird of Monteu … Montreaux…

Make-up Girl: Montrose.

All: The Laird of Montrose!

Second Technician: Gal-lopped…

Jeremy: Galloped!

(Everybody joins in helping with words. We mix through to Edinburgh Castle at dusk. Continues into the 'Kamikaze Scotsman' sketch)
